BEGINNER SKILLS COURSE  (Both unisex & women only)

This is the best way to improve your riding skills or to try out mountain biking for the first time in a fun and relaxed environment. Our PMBI (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor) qualified instructors will take you through the core basics and fundamental skills needed to ride a mountain bike on which you can then build on and improve. These clinics are also great for intermediate riders that are struggling to improve their skills and need some guidance on simple changes to things such as body position, braking skills, climbing/descending, correct gearing and more.

During our clinics we aim to spend as much time as possible riding and therefore conduct our courses out on the trails where we can all learn and practice our new skills straight away.

Our skills courses also include a FULL DAY SHUTTLE TICKET which means that once you have finished your course you can then ride shuttles for the rest of the day perfecting your newly learnt skills!
